Dr. Robert Yeh Discusses the Impact of Public Reporting on High-Risk Interventions
In this video discussion with Dr. Seth Bilazarian, Dr. Robert Yeh of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center provides an overview of the current state of public reporting and its relationship with mortality outcomes in high-risk patients. Dr. Yeh describes why public reporting may be contributing to risk avoidance among interventionalists who are routinely treating high-risk cases. Additionally, he explains how exclusion of cardiogenic shock from public reporting in New York had resulted in an increase in both percutaneous coronary interventions and associated survival for patients at particularly high risk for adverse outcomes. Finally, Dr. Yeh discusses the ultimate prevalence of public reporting in the clinical landscape.
